A New Loo with a View

Garden visitors who follow the Nature Trail to Painter’s Point discover a great view of the farm fields, the lake, and the cliffs and islands.

This summer Bill designed and prefabricated another outhouse with the help of several Green Thumbers.

The floor and each of the walls were built in the gardens. The interior walls were painted blue. The outhouse was assembled on site at Painter’s Point. Each wall was taken up the Nature Trail to the location on the trailer of the garden tractor. Linoleum was laid on the floor before the walls were erected.

Trevor and Bill put on the rafters and strapping. There's now a steel roof covering their handiwork.

At Painter’s Point there is a picnic table.

There is also a viewing shelter complete with a roof and benches where the view over the bay can be enjoyed in super sunny weather or during summer showers. Bill designed the corner brackets to look like the nearby living branches.

Now with the addition of our new outhouse tucked away, but near the trail, Painter’s Point offers all the comforts of home! The view through the outhouse door keyhole window is well worth the time spent there!

A squirrel proof container for the loo paper has been already been found.

The outside of the loo will be left to weather naturally. Bill hopes to add battens to the sides if there is a break in this early winter weather.
